The Co-Pilot's quick-release system detaches easily from your bike.
The Co-Pilot is equipped with a true quick-release system for quick detachment from the adult bike, along with adjustable handlebars that accommodate children of different heights. In addition, the seat is more comfortable and better built than typical bike trailer seats, so your child will want to keep riding throughout the day. And once you arrive at your destination, the arms fold up easily for compact storage. Other features include an attractive black and silver color scheme, a safety flag and handlebar pad, and a 20-inch wheel size. The Co-Pilot--which holds up to 75 pounds--weighs 24 pounds by itself and is recommended for ages 4 to 9.

Setup was pretty easy. The only problem was that the seatpost wouldn't go all the way into the frame, which was a must in order for my 4.5 yr old to ride. I needed to jam a scrap metal pipe into the frame's seat tube a couple times in order to knock loose some chunks of metal flashing that were preventing the seatpost from going all the way in. Once that was done though, everything was great. As for attaching to the lead bike, there is a "hitch receiver" that bolts onto the seatpost of the lead bike. The lead bike needs 2 inches of exposed seatpost in order to attach the hitch receiver. The WeeRide attaches to the hitch receiver exactly as would an automobile trailer hitch, except that the WeeRide comes with a quick release bolt for easy attachment/detachment to/from the lead bike. The hinge for folding the WeeRide is also secured by a quick release bolt. Those two quick releases are all you need to mess with when you want to go for a ride. Very simple!
The bike is *almost* too big for my 4.5 yr old daughter to ride. She was freaked out at first because, even with the seat all the way down, she can't touch the ground with her feet. And the hinged coupling between the seatpost "hitch" and the WeeRide frame has a little play in it, so it felt a bit wobbly to my daughter at first. But once she got used to the idea that she's firmly attached to Dad's bike, and Dad's bike doesn't tip over :) , she started to enjoy herself.Read more ›
The best part is I'm now able to get back to doing some "distance" rides. My daughter and I spent over 2 hours riding and exploring wooded park trails Saturday. Best day ever with her! She didn't get too tired, yet we both got a nice workout. And her peddaling does make it easier going up hills, etc. However, at one point I looked back and she was eating chips from her basket--with both hands! So a kid won't automatically fall off even if they're not holding on. (A kids bike basket will fit on the trailer handle bars to store her water, etc. and I recommend getting one.)
Re size, my daughter is 4.5 years old and about 41 inches. She is JUST tall enough to peddal with the bike seat all the way down (including taking the reflector off the seat post) and wearing her thickest soled sneakers. But, again, she was cool holding on for hours with tight turns, bumps, foot bridges and (the best part to her) a sudden rain storm at the end of the ride.
Anyway, I'm very happy with the bike and don't know what the more pricey options offer that this one didn't. I can't wait to get back out this weekend.
DECEMBER 2012 ADDENDUM: We are still enjoying this trailer, but find it necessary to keep tools for en route adjustments. Maybe if I was stronger this wouldn't be an issue, but I've had to tighten the peddals, handle bar, wheel cover and attachment to my seat post trail-side all on multiple occassions. Irritating, but not enough so that I would have spent more on a different product. Just changing 5 stars to 4.
We bought a WeeRide co-pilot trailer-bike because REI recalled the one they make, called the Novara Afterburner, which we were very happy with. We ride our bikes a lot and although REI said they would send a fix for the Afterburner in a month or two, we couldn't wait that long. I only have experience with these two trailer bikes but will offer a comparison of the two.
Assembling the co-pilot once it arrived wasn't too bad. I liked the REI trailer-bike because we could try it out before we bought it, and then it came already assembled -- but certainly ordering the co-pilot online has its conveniences too. The first disappointment was that the co-pilot has a piece that has to be semi-permanently attached to the parent's bike. The REI trailer-bike has a quick-release mechanism that makes it easy to move the trailer-bike from one bike to another. Moving the co-pilot takes 5-10 minutes and an allen wrench.
On the second time we used the co-pilot, our four-year old was dumped off the bike. My wife was walking her bike while our son rode the trailer-bike, and she made a somewhat tight turn to get the bike turned around.Read more ›
